Alice Hoffman, author of more than a dozen great novels, plus books for younger readers, recently published her first nonfiction work, Survival Lessons, inspired by her own life and the lives of those around her. It was a perfect book for me to pick up recently, when I was a bit weary from travelling too much, and she has good words on several topics related to aging.
At the start of the book, she provides a lovely epigram. I don't think it is giving away too much to repeat it here:
There is always a before and an after.
My advice, travel light.
Choose only what you need most
to see you through.
